Really disappointing, food was not good. Garlic bread I received was full of oil and the pasta dishes were so bland, it was like a tin of tomatoes poured onto pasta. Would not go back here again for food. Staff were very friendly tho.

Had a lovely dinner for 2 in La Bella Vita last night. Everything was excellent, from the food to the staff, to the atmosphere. It was cosy, homely and the staff were extremely friendly. The food was beautiful and we didn't leave an empty plate between us. Planning our next trip already. Thanks!

Ate here with my husband and 3 children last Friday. The early bird was a lovely menu with a good range of choices. Starter, mains and tea/coffee for under €20. The waitress was so friendly and just generally lovely. We arrived at 6.30 which was perfect timing as it was fairly quiet so we were just getting our mains as... More
